A solid-state drive is considerably quicker than any conventional hard disk. This is because an HDD works by using rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more data is read and written, the slower and hotter they get, whereas an SDD employs modules of flash memory, therefore there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes this kind of drives a recommended solution when speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for saving data which is used regularly on web servers. Many service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they store the data on HDDs, but they use a couple of SSDs so as to cache the more frequently used data and consequently, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is reduced since their disks need to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Website Hosting

Our innovative cloud Internet hosting platform employs solely SSD drives, so if you go for any of our website hosting solutions, you will take advantage of the speed that the drives provide. We no longer use hard disks, so your files, databases and emails will all load from quick SSDs. For even greater performance, we use caching solid-state drives. Multiple drives are used by our system for any file that is accessed more frequently and the data on these drives is dynamically refreshed to make sure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the primary drives is lowered, so we can ensure fantastic performance for all kinds of sites no matter how often they're accessed and prevent a situation where some websites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes created by others. This setup also improves the lifespan of the main drives and decreases the possibility of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want speed and fantastic performance for your websites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a very suitable solution as they're made on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for every part of the service - e-mail addresses, databases and files. That way, every site that you host with us will load fast. Just like other companies, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you'll be able to take advantage of the top performance all the time and regardless of the type of your websites. The caching drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied to them, which both reduces the load and ensures the excellent performance of all Internet sites which load straight from the main drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased as there'll be a lot less reading and writing processes on them.
